Hemp And It's Properties - What Makes It Organic?

Organic Hemp ClothingAll products on Yes It's Organic are, of course, Organic. Hemp can be made into a wide variety of fabrics as shown in the "pie" photo to the left.

Hemp, especially, is an extremely beneficial plant fiber for use in clothing for the whole family. It requires no chemicals in its production so it's naturally grown based on Organic standards. In fact, growing hemp actually improves the soil.

Therefore the Organic Hemp clothes that touch your skin are as nature intended without any harmful toxins. Organic clothes are good for women, men, and children and especially chemically sensitive individuals.

Hemp is good for the environment. In addition to being Organically grown, our suppliers manufacture the hemp into fiber and fabric with an environmentally friendly (also referred to as "eco friendly") process.

Hemp fibers have many valuable qualities that are quite desirable in a textile material for both women's organic clothing and men's organic clothing. Some of these are:

  • Hemp makes a strong, durable, comfortable, healthy, and high-performance fabric that’s great for all seasons and for use indoors and out.

  • Hemp is an exceptionally comfortable and healthy fabric to wear, since it’s hypoallergenic and non-irritating to the skin.

  • Hemp has excellent insulative and conductive qualities. When compared to cotton, for example, hemp is warmer yet breathes better. For hot weather, hemp has superior conductive qualities to those of all other textile fibers (equaled only by flax), allowing the wearer to feel cool, comfortable, and fresh in very hot and/or humid conditions.

  • Hemp’s fiber molecule has a shaft-like structure that allows it to wick moisture right off the body, dry quickly, and, in cold conditions, even feel warm when wet. Products made from hemp are much less prone to develop odor problems.

  • Hemp fabric is very resistant to degradation from mold, bacteria, salt water, sunlight, abrasion, and chemicals, while being fully biodegradable (unlike synthetic fibers). Therefore, Hemp is a great fabric for hand bags, backpacks, duffel bags, and travel bags.

  • Hemp provides unparalleled protection from UV radiation.

  • Hemp textiles have rich and supple texture and tremendous strength and durability.

  • Hemp is an excellent ecological alternative to environmentally destructive conventional cotton cultivation and synthetics. Hemp has a wide variety of uses from a kitchen throw rug to an outdoor hammock.

  • Plant fibers breathe much better than leather and synthetics - and hemp breathes better than all other plant fibers.

  • Hemp fiber is also more environmentally sound than synthetics, because plant fibers are totally biodegradable and have been produced from a natural origin without the pollution resulting from the manufacture of synthetics.

  • Hemp also has greater ecological benefits than other plant fibers since it is the most environmentally positive of all agricultural crops. It requires no chemicals in its production and actually improves the soil.

Why Is Hemp So Good?

Hemp naturally doesn't require the use of conventional pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Of course, we verify with our suppliers that the hemp is grown Organically.

Hemp is one of the most environmentally positive crops, improving soil quality as it grows. In order to develop a sustainable economy and provide a healthier standard of living for our future, we must work with plants and develop both agricultural and processing methods that don't harm our environment. Due to its rapid growth cycle, hemp can help us shift to a carbohydrate based sustainable economy. This change is one of the first major steps towards bringing us into harmony with our natural world.

Organic Hemp Women's ClothingHemp fabric is an excellent material for clothing and bags, because it has tremendous strength and durability. It can be made soft for clothing. Yet, for bags, it also has a natural rigidity that provides superb structural qualities to maintain form and volume.

With its rich texture and natural look, hemp fabric has a distinct style that is great for all kinds of clothing and bags.
